The second photo is of a quilt made with reproduction fabrics. This one was fun to make. I like the border stripe fabric I chose for the sashings between the blocks. It was better sewing the blocks together with sashings than having multiple seams meeting and making lumps that are hard to press flat.
The third quilt top is a street scene. This thing is pretty stiff. Definitely a wall type quilt.
The last picture is a wool applique project. I was thinking of making a pillow with it. Problem is that it is not a standard size. I would have to make the pillow. I can do that but just haven't taken the time. I used cottons for the base fabric on this. Also, the flag is made from a cotton stripe.
I know you all are thinking that I have a riduculous number of quilt tops that need something done with them. I 100% agree. One top is on its way to a new home and I have one that I am definitely donating to a charity as I know I will never finish it. I keep thinking that, if I were to finish all these quilt projects, what am I going to do with them?? I already have quite a pile of finished quilts from over the years. I have the need to create so I don't think I will get out of the quilting fever any time soon. I have some decisions to make about some of the quilt tops before putting them back on hangers in the closet.
I think I will photograph any quilt tops left that I haven't posted before and maybe skip those that I have. Unless there is a big cry out for seeing them again. I will definitely post them again when they are finished or at least when I am working on them. I have several UFO projects that aren't to a quilt top state yet. The list just goes on and on!
I purchased some one inch hexagon papers that arrived today. I am thinking I may have made a mistake. I already have 1/2 inch ones. The one inch look so big. Maybe I needed 3/4" papers. I am not starting on the project for quite some time. Have to think about this.
Thanks for stopping by for a look!
